Tuition and Fees Explanation

Wright State University’s Board of Trustees reviews tuition and fees on an annual basis. Rates are generally approved in the spring for the upcoming Fall Semester.

Wright State University reserves the right to make policy and fee changes. 

Wright State will not defer payment of fees or accept partial payments or postdated checks. Financial accounts are subject to audit at any time throughout a student’s enrollment or academic career.

Inclusive Courseware Fee


In an effort to protect students and insure their best interest, the U.S. Department of Education published new rules (34CFR668.161-167) via the Federal Register on October 30, 2015. The Program Integrity and Improvement rules require Wright State University to provide students the ability to opt out of fees charged to a student’s account that are associated with books and/or online access to course materials.

Inclusive Courseware Fees

Wright State University takes your education seriously. In addition to negotiating substantial discounts, we coordinate with Barnes & Noble and the publisher to deliver your books and online access to course materials through Pilot, so it is available the first day of class. Learn more about Inclusive Courseware. Opting out of the Inclusive Courseware Fee, and the automatic delivery of the electronic book and/or access to online course materials, will hinder your success in this class and IS NOT recommended.

Completing the Opt-Out Process

Students who wish to exercise their right to opt out of Inclusive Courseware Fees should download the Inclusive Courseware Fee Opt Out Form (PDF) complete, sign, and submit the form at RaiderConnect, 130 Student Union.

All forms must be received by the end of the 100 percent tuition refund period to be considered for removal of the Inclusive Courseware Fee from the student account. Review the Academic Calendar for important semester specific dates, deadlines, and refund period information.
